Great Night Out

Series 1 - Episode 5

Radio Times
Review by:
David Butcher

Tonight, on top of the increasingly good main cast, we get a gift-box of guest stars: Keith Allen, Kevin Eldon and Phil Cornwell all drop by – enough comic talent to power a series on their own. Allen plays a mad comedy farmer (with shotgun and ukulele) in whose field our bunch of friends go to camp. And as his saucy daughter, it’s a barely recognisable Sophia Di Martino (Polly from Casualty). She coaxes Beggsy into an assignation in the hay-barn that could be a mistake.

Meanwhile, Glyn is on a promise with Julie, which in this sort of show means everything that can go wrong, will. It’s lovably silly, knockabout farce and it puts a smile on your face.

About this programme

5/6. The ways of women continue to confuse and confound the lads, with Colleen's frisky behaviour leaving Daz with some difficult questions to ask himself. Beggsy fares better in romance as he catches up with what he has been missing out on in the single life, while conflict looms for Hodge and Kath when their weekend away is interrupted by a few unexpected visitors. With Keith Allen (Robin Hood).
